  • Apple doubles down on self-driving safety research for 'Apple Car'

    Again, better to use the terminology of crashes or collisions, not accidents. 
    Cars are dangerous machines and there will be deaths when the rumored "Apple Car" gets into accidents.
    An accident would be a vehicle slipping on oil or black ice (assuming the driver was driving appropriately) - ie generally unavoidable at the time and no one is at fault. 

    A collision or crash is something preventable. For example, by a human driver driving at the correct speed for the circumstances, or not checking their phone, or not driving tired or drunk. Or by a driving software leaving sufficient braking distance, or recognising and knowing how to respond to a potential hazard. Or by hardware being properly checked and serviced. Etc.

  • Apple Maps gets crowdsourced accident, speed check and hazard warnings in iOS 14.5 beta

    It’s crazy if they’re actually calling them “accidents” as opposed to “crashes” or “collisions”. Almost all collisions are due to someone’s fault, and could have been prevented.

  • Apple's HomePod mini review: the speaker for the rest of us

    Not available in Ireland yet. 

    It would be nice if articles such as this could include aspects such as this, and why that might be.

  • Why the iPhone 12 Pro is worth the upgrade cost

    I LOVE the look of this phone. The square edges were always my favourite - I always felt all iPhones since were a backwards design step. 

    Colours, however - who cares? They only matter for the 3 minutes until you put it into a protective case. 

    I’m on a X - so the camera would be a really big upgrade, and almost worth it. €1160 ($1370) is a lot for a camera though! 

    Outside of the U.S. not being given the full 5G capabilities is a big no for me. (I’m in Ireland.)

  • UK, Ireland get Apple Maps Look Around, cycling directions

    Apple’s own website doesn’t yet mention cycling directions anywhere other than the above.
